The real comic that Edward is referencing isn’t really all that lewd. It’s the fanbase that is. He’s mixing them together somewhat unfairly. I’ll probably change the name to something fictional because it’s a lot easier down the road if I find out the creator of the actual comic hates me for some reason. People often say that it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission, & sometimes that is true, but in some cases I’ve found that it’s much easier to just fictionalize your subject & take the other party out of the equation. Right now especially I am not getting along with the greater artistic “community”. I quotate community because I’ve never felt like there was a community. It’s more like every other aspect of life. A series of gatekeepers with power use whoever they like and shun whoever isn’t useful to them. In the end the only thing that matter is power; naked, merciless, force. I’ve always been too even minded to get along with most other artists. Not fitting in even with the rejects has a long term effect on how you experience the world. I’m distrustful & paranoid because you can only survive getting backstabbed so many times. It’s a double damage bonus if undetected! For the most part I’m a non entity in the webcomic “community”. People don’t know who I am in spite of my success. Which is probably for the best, particularly in the now. Sometimes it’s better to keep your head down & work toward your goals unnoticed, so no one thinks to get in your way.
